Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Carden on Thursday, April 29, 2010 at 8:20pm.

The collision between a hammer and a nail can be considered to be approximately elastic. Estimate the kinetic energy acquired by a 13 g nail when it is struck by a 550 g hammer moving with an initial speed of 4.1 m/s.

I am completely confused by this problem all of my answers have been off by orders of magnitude. My closest response was .23.
